Verdict

CALICO CAT was aimed high on his debut and though never a threat, he wasn't disgraced in the Group 3 Ormonde Stakes at Chester behind Memphis Tennessee. He's the one to beat if running anywhere near that level in this company. Swnymor made a promising debut at Pontefract and could prove the main threat ahead of the disappointing favourite at Pontefract, Kashgar, but Hallmark Star isn't out of this on his close-up second at the same track in April. Between Us showed some ability on her debut at Lingfield in December and is one to note on her return to action.
